    Red face new radio.. how to get temp/radio display to work again??

    Since I am going to take out the origional Astra G radio and replacing it with a Pioneer unit, I will need to reconnect the radio/temp/date display so that it will work again after installing the new radio. Can anyone here please tell me which wires I need to change/reconnect and to where in order to get it work?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey!

    The Temp and Time will stay with an aftermarket head unit. The date will disappear when the radio is on.... This is remedied by cutting a wire. Do a search on here - I think there have been many posts about it...

    Good luck,

    As DJAv says above. To keep the date see this thread. It has a photo showing the wire you need to cut.
